the opponents of the campaign trail to political pals. president obama and hillary clinton sat down together for an interview with "60 minutes." one of clinton's last interviews before he leaves the state department. we'll look at that tonight. >>> also tim hetherington is remembered tonight. why he's so missed. his close friend and colleague joins us for that. you'll hear that from him tonight. >>> we begin tonight with breaking news. the head of the u.s. anti-doping agency, the man who spent years investigating lance armstrong, has told cbs news that armstrong lied about his doping in his interview with oprah winfrey. the same interview that was advertised as no holds barred. lance armstrong saying he was telling the full truth. the interview where armstrong repeatedly said he was coming clean about his use of banned substances. tygart whose damning report led to the cyclist stripped of his titles and banned from the sport for life, he also told cbs news he's offered armstrong a deadline, february 6th, to cooperate fully and totally truthfully in exchange for a lessening of his lifetime ba
down the road. but you will find a lot of democrats who say if you can turn the obama coalition into a democratic coalition, then the democrats will have built in on the national stage pretty much what ronald reagan had for 20 years and the republican party had after ronald reagan on the national stage. this coalition, if he can transfer it over, it spells trouble for the republicans. >> congresswoman, what do you think about what john king was just saying? >> i don't -- i'm not privy to the president's processes and how he came up with the decision. all i can tell you is women have been dying and fighting and bleeding for this nation in combat jobs -- in combat roles in iraq and afghanistan. they may not have had those jobs specifically other than aviation, my branch of service, but they've been fighting in combat and they've been engaged in combat action. and i think that the last ten years of women serving in combat has finally pushed us to this point where you know, the pentagon's finally realized, look, women have served ably and it's time that we open up these fields. >> b
. >>steve: last night barack obama sat down with hillary rodham clinton whose official last day as secretary of state is this friday. why exactly did they sit down? the interview was awkward. they were giddy saying goodbye. and right at the top steve kroft said they only gave us 30 minutes which means there's not going to be real news, which there wasn't. >>brian: i think for some reason they didn't dig into anything at all. i would like to know did she pass out and hit her head? was she pushed? how did she hit her head and get a concussion? >>steve: several ways. she said -- quote -- "i still have lingering effects from falling on my head." >>brian: there was no follow-up. >>steve: you're right. >>gretchen: she was injured. she had a concussion. >>steve: that is one of the questions i have. how did you fall on your head? >>gretchen: she passed out i think is the story. to me, 30 minutes is plenty of time -- well, plenty of time to make news in 30 minutes. for me, this was more, the first thing that came to my mind when i saw the two of them together is barack obama is going to endorse hilla
go-to interview forum. "60 minutes" sitting down with steve kroft. president obama has preferred going and sitting down to steve kroft "60 minutes" more than any other television format interview person out there. steve kroft has got the interviews. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> are you winding up? >> well, let me just say, the irony here is that "60 minutes," which i think is a quality show, it's put some good stuff on. clearly withheld the news from an interview with president obama back in september that turned out to be push for innovation no a presidential debate and i think had a bearing on this election. basically they interviewed president obama on september 129, the day after the benghazi attacks and the president said and i think i'm quoting it's too early to tell whether or not this is terror related. this became a real issue in the campaign, when the president retroactively said no i always described it as a terror attack. "60 minutes" had that footage and they did not air it at the time. they did not air it when the debate broke out when the president this a terror attack
as the two sat down for a side-by-side interview with cbs' "60 minutes." obama had nothing but high praise for clinton. >> why did you want to do this together, a joint interview? >> well, the main thing is i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretaries of state we've had. it has been a great collaboration over the last four years. i'm going to miss her. wish she was sticking around. but she has logged in so many miles i can't begrudge her to take it easy far little bit. >> hillary clinton wraps up her tour of duty as secretary of state next week. she's been praised and admired around the world for most of her tenure. she's leaving under some controversial circumstances after questions about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. aaron david miller has advised several secretaries of state and is a distinguished scholar at the woodrow wilson center and joins me from washington. the killing of ambassador stephens and the attack on the consulate be the lasting memory of hillary clinton's tenure? >>
with the network but turned down a recent offer to renew her contract. >>> and president barack obama addressed the 25th national conference on lgbt equality via video message. he thanked the community for, quote, helping to lead the way to a future where everyone is treated with dignity and respect no matter who they love or where they came from. he is the first president so send a video message to the conference. >>> president obama made history in his inauguration speech when he talked about gay rights and the history of civil rights in america. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal, is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our fore bearers through seneca falls and selma and stone wall. >> this week atlanta is hosting the creating change conference. it brings together 3,000 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender advocates from across the country. stacey long is director of public policy at the national gay and lesbian task force. you heard what the president had to say in his address. how did you react to it? >> absolute
, president obama like to overturn the ban. he has the backing of u.s. military chiefs to break down the barriers. a u.s. marine captain has done two tours in afghanistan, it is not about gender. >> i want to make the point that we are not looking to just reserve a spot for women, we are trying to give people a chance to compete for the spot. some women cannot do it just like some men cannot do it. the policy being repealed it says that they have a chance. >> the vast majority of britain's armed forces have already been opened up to women but there is still one significant exception. women continue to be barred from what is called close combat roles. in the british armed forces, when men are already flying fighter jets and serving on warships. soon, they will be allowed on submarines. on the ground, they are working as bomb disposal experts and medics, often under fire. three british servicemen have already lost their lives. this is one retired general who does not believe they will be equal in battle. >> cannot afford to have anything but the fittest, strong is the most determined p
conduct. the obama administration, like the bush administration, stomped down these lawsuits and day won. they got most of these lawsuits dismissed. it was a massacre. some of these losses were getting to a point where we could have had a fantastic ruling. the courts would finally acknowledge standing and say you cannot violate the privacy of citizens and president obama and his administration blocked it. we have seen that throughout the four years of the obama administration. there's a disconnect between what obama says publicly and what he actually does in court. gay-rights is a good example. at thesident's inauguration is not the present we see in court. for the early part of his term, he was in court fighting to protect oma and don't ask, don't tell, . he still has not been willing to support that view so there is a disconnect. public-interest litigator is like myself, this is an extremely hostile administration. there is no change between this administration and bush. this administration has been more successful in that sense. host: let's go to louisville, kentucky, independent line
that doesn't put border security first. let's go to carl cameron in washington. how do you break this down? is there a big difference from what you heard from president obama, compared to the bipartisan commission of eight senators yesterday? we heard a lot more from the so-called gang of eight. they got more granular. what we heard from the president was a campaign rally. he is going to head out on the campaign trail and push his agenda items with campaign-style peaches of that nature. you could hear the crowd getting wooped up with campaign-style rhetoric to advance this. it's generalities and we haven't seen the details. what is noting is that the president has changed his language. in the past when he has been talking about comprehensive immigration reform, he has talked about the desire as an end game to get those here now illegally, quote, legal status. now he is saying this is a path not to legal status, but a path to citizenship. that's much more aggressive. the time table he is likely to propose is a slightly faster path to citizensship than what the commission has put forward. ha
.c. i question is for bob schieffer. you said all elections come down to the economy. you can make the argument president obama centered his candidacy on social issues. what about today with the fiscal environment the united states is facing? what we have better discussions during these debates that centered more on the economy? >> i think in the end, this one did come down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as a guidepost to where he wants to go from here. but i did not hear him to talk a lot about the campaign -- during the campaign. the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk very much about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think they thought they had to get -- what they concentrated on, in some ways, this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters to the polls and recognizing the demographics in this coun
a great night. ♪ lou: >> a very good evening. i'm lori rothman. the obama -- obama economy heading a stumbling block, suffering its first decline since the end of the recession. the government cutting spending and u.s. businesses trying down inventories in the fourth quarter causing the economy to contract for the first time in more than three years. u.s. gross domestic product falling a rate of a tenth of a percent, that is the worst performance since the second quarter of 2009. this is growing at a 3% clip in the third quarter of last year. the federal reserve today saying that growth has stalled, but telling the public temporary, pledging to continue with the easy money policy into the outlook for employment improved substantially, the news coming as somewhat of late surprised as economists predicted. the economy hit with super storm sandy in late october causing extensive damage along the east coast, seen as a major factor. economists see the same growth in excess of 3 percent will be needed to significantly lower unemployment and get at least some of the 23 million unemployed
minutes," president obama sat alongside his departing secretary of state hillary clinton, a one-time political rival who he now describes as one of his closest advisers. secretary clinton, of course, is stepping down from her post, fueling -- you'd think you're on steroids and not me, seriously. just stop. >> are you juicing? >> she is. >> i had a huge allergic reaction to something. >> we don't want to hear about your rashes, so roll the clip. go. >> what's the -- i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, steve, you know -- i know -- >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. i mean, you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already. and it's taking place. >> you know, steve, i've got to tell you. you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. >> right. >> and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> yeah. and i, as you know, steve, i am still secretary of state, so i'm out of politics, and i'm forbidden from even hearing these questions. >> boy. you know, they h
has said, if we have to shut down the government to make sure president obama understands that, we're serious, that's almost treason, according to the 14th amendment. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan. mr. camp: thank you. at this time i yield one minute to a distguished member from illinois, mr. davis. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. davis: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise in support of h.r. 325, base opped a simple principle if congress doesn't pass a budget, congress doesn't get paid. we cannot start the process of controlling spending in this country without a budget. we also cannot ask hard working taxpayers to manage their own budget when elected leaders fail to do sthosme house has passed a budget each of the last two years. the other body must do theirs if we are going to control the out of control spending. for years the senate has gotten away without passing a budget but they have found time to pass laws that increase spending. s that terrible way to run a government and
supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them. and, obviously, that sort of made me remember the comment for which mr. obama was much maligned in the 2008 campaign. let me just play that. >> we went to some of these small towns in pennsylvania, like a lot of small towns in the midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. and it's not surprising then, that they get bitter. and they cling to guns or religion. >> rowland, should the democrats heed president clinton's advice on the gun issue? >> i think what the key for democrats to do is, again, to be sensible when it comes to guns. you have seen democrats who are strong nra supporters say, we should do something. and that's what the real key here is. the problem is when it becomes, you either do something, and the opposition says, no, you do nothing. there has to be some kind of middle ground. so what some democrats are saying is, look, we've got to be able to appeal to them. but it's not just folks in the south also, erin. you have democrats in minnesota, wisconsin, maine, new york that have a
the debt mitchell generation will be spending our prime years pga massive taxes to pay down the debt, and -- or to pay towards entitlement in interest payments alone. so, taxing our nation's job creators is not going to solve anything. >> e. >> the irony is barack obama got that young vote joe e overwhelmingly. >> he was able to say it's' a good thing you're staying in your mother's basement until you're 27 years old. ask him at 27 when they're out to there for the first time hit the bricks, any job experience? no. any experience? >> i lived in a basement for a while. we're becoming a welfare foe site. they're calling out our natural instincts and it sounds great and sells well to young people. ultimately it's not a gift, it's can curse. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> in the meantime, if she lip synchs, he lied. and his girlfriend was fake. count me fried. ♪ ÷÷ ♪ and the home of the brave ♪ the brave [cheers and applause] >> new reports are beyoncÉ put the lip sync on. sources claim the singer didn't have enough time to rehearse with the marine band, and the fake
. what a statement they have for america. it is probably not what you expected. president obama promised to close gitmo and the office working to close it is shut down instead. now why would that be? who went second. who believes that there are gun laws on the books that are the strongest statement we can do. you they, what would you do to sort of calm his fears, to insist that you will do everything you can in your power as one of the outspoken people on this issue to make sure gun laws are enforced that are on the books? >> well, one of the things that hit me right away when i heard this horrible news, is that here we go again, a law that says no guns in a particular area. gun-free zone was once again a factor in what happened in this tragedy. it's, i don't think it is a miss talk that all of the mass murders that we've experienced over last 20 years have occurred in gun-free zones. all but one of them legally enforced gun-free zones. that, ought to tell us something that, we're not making ourselves safe when nobody is around to protect anybody with a gun. this guy committed suicide an
said they would support the house bill, which they claimed as a victory >> president obama has consistently said he'd refuse to negotiate around the debt ceiling. his strategy is vindicated now that the republicans have backed off their threats to take the nation into a default. the president stared down the republicans. they blinked. >> ifill: congress still faces other fiscal fights. automatic spending cuts are due to kick in on march first, and funding for the government runs out march 27. so, can the republican party use fiscal issues to regain its footing? for more on the political fights ahead we turn to susan page, washington bureau chief for "u.s.a. today." and stuart rothenberg of the "rothenberg political report" and "roll call." chuck schumer just said the republicans brinked. did they blink, susan, and does it matter if they did? >> i think a big recalbraigz on their part. they find themselves on the defensive when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. remember how they vowed they would only raise the debt ceiling by a dollar for every dollar cut in spending. now they
